    Is your monitor 1920x1080? Take a picture with phone or other device and post it here to give the other users a better idea of what is wrong.

    Mine's 1600x900

    My friend's screen is 1920x1080 and the hard drive icons are like that if that's what's wrong. What do you think is wrong?

    It's overscan of the TV.

    There are several ways to fix this. Depending on the manufacturer of the TV, They have their own way of naming schemes.

    On your remote, try finding anything that relates to the following:

    PC/Computer mode,
    "Format" or "View Mode" -> "Dot by Dot" or "1:1 pixel mapping"
    Full Screen
    Full Pixel
    Edge to Edge
    Screen Fit
